Today the Prime Minister tabled the 12th Closing the Gap Report in Parliament.

The report reveals that the early childhood education and Year 12 attainment targets are on track, while heartening improvements have been made in reading and numeracy, employment and health.

This year’s report marks a new era for Closing the Gap, and reflects a greater focus on partnership between governments and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. In March 2019, the Council of Australian Governments and the National Coalition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peak Organisations signed the Partnership Agreement on Closing the Gap. The Partnership Agreement is guiding the development of the new National Agreement on Closing the Gap, which will set out priorities over the next ten years.
